its taken me long enough!

so yes…. i’m here, and i’ve got a blog.

some might say “about time”. you’re probably right. I have been meaning to get myself into the world of blogging goodness for years. for one, it lets me have a little space for me and my own work, and also if I want to post tutorials or the such like (have been known to πŸ˜‰ ), then I can do it on here.

now that i’ve got all that out of the way, I suppose i’d better find something to talk about… maybe my latest creations and the such, and news of course.

i’m not going to lie about this, i have been under the influence of spinners block recently, so havent really spun masses. Ispun 650m 3ply worsted weight from superfine merino and shetland. thats turning into a woolywormhead had for my friend, this evening I started some laceweight alpaca/silk from fyberspates. as for knitting… the hat obviously, i’ve knitted some socks, and hopefully another set of socks for my mum as its mothers day soon.

as far as dyein goes, i’ve done SOME hehe! πŸ˜› good job I have really, as i’m bringing my fibres with me to wonderwool wales, so theyll be there for you to buy. anyone who doesnt know my style of dyeing, its very vivid. I dont DO pastel hehe! if you need sunglasses then it’s likely i’ve dyed it! ;)… so in case anyone wonders this is the reason my etsy shop is so poorly stocked atm. the only stuff there is a bit well…. pastel for me hehe! its the last of the stuff I had dyed when I got some new acid dyes, and was still seeing what they could do. seeminly wasnt adding nearly enough, but anyways I digress….

overall fab to have a blog to finally express my opinion (ohh dear god I hear you screaming ;P!).

thanks peeps πŸ˜€

  3. Hi James! Loads of colour here, wow, does brighten up a dull morning! Happy blogging. I got Woollywormhead’s book for Christmas, but haven’t started as I haven’t got a suitable yarn, so I was interested to read about your choice of Shetland/merino blend.

  6. Hi James I found this very interesting but I have to say I didn’t understand much of it ;-P I hope to get along to the meeting in July to learn a little more, and I see you are giving a presentation to the Guild in October I am looking forward to that as well.
